Lokinet Control Panel


This repository contains a cross-platform GUI for controlling and observing stats from a locally-running lokinet. See also loki-network.

There is also an option (Bootstrap Client from Web) in the system tray's context menu (except when compiled with SYSTEMD=true, as is the case in the Debian packages). This will download a bootstrap file which will allow the lokinet client to join the lokinet network.


To build, you'll need cmake and a handful of Qt packages available. On Ubuntu or similar, you can install these with:

sudo apt install qt5-default qtdeclarative5-dev qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtquick-controls2 qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qml-module-qt-labs-platform qml-module-qtcharts libqt5charts5-dev libqt5svg5-dev

Then clone, build and run:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/loki-project/loki-network-control-panel
cd loki-network-control-panel
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4


The app can be compiled to support systemd for starting and stopping lokinet. To enable this, invoke cmake with -DSYSTEMD=ON.

Note that interactions with systemd may require privilege escalation, which is handled through polkit. A graphical polkit backend must be running for this to work.

cmake -DSYSTEMD=ON ..


Nightly Windows builds are available via Continous Integration.


The above commands work to build a working executable, however if you also want to bundle it into a .app bundle invoke cmake as:


which will produce a lokinet-gui.app executable app bundle directory containing the binary, resources, and dependencies.

Note that building this way additionally requires imagemagick installed and built with SVG support.


The following command-line arguments are supported:


Runs the gui in tray mode.


Provide a custom rpc url for talking to lokinet, defaults to tcp://
